With propane and natural gas prices on the rise and the Old Farmer’s Almanac predicting a colder than average winter, consumers can expect to pay more to heat their homes. The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel says homeowners and renters can expect to pay up to 30 percent more for heating this year. Jeff Blemke from Ultimate Air in Luxemburg says there are ways you can save your furnace and your pocketbook.
Blemke also recommends setting the thermostat back four degrees during the winter months and not turning the furnace off for long periods of time during spurts of extreme cold as other ways to get your home or business heated efficiently.
